‘Chelsea players thinking about Hazard exit’ – Petit sees Lampard already in must-win territory

The former Blues midfielder believes victory must be secured over Leicester, allowing summer sales and early losses for a new regime to be forgotten

New Chelsea boss Frank Lampard already finds himself in must-win territory, says Emmanuel Petit, with a 4-0 defeat to Manchester United suggesting that some players are still “thinking about what a big loss Eden Hazard is”.

The Blues have had to contend with the departure of their most potent attacking threat in what has been a testing summer at Stamford Bridge.

Maurizio Sarri also left the club, leading former fans’ favourite Lampard to be returned to familiar surroundings.
